(Michelle) Obama for President!

flotus_garden1_hi-res

Michelle Obama inspires me.  She inspires many people.  She aims to inspire an entire generation. Her goal is audacious.  She aims to eliminate childhood obesity in a generation.  That is certainly a tall order and I believe she has the passion and the influence to do it.  She is using her celebrity to change the […]

mcrib_sunburst

I don’t watch much television, so I wasn’t aware of this until yesterday, but apparently McDonald’s has just re-released the McRib for a limited time, at least here in the US.  People with no self-control everywhere are running to their nearest Micky Dees or Maccers to get their fix.  What exactly are they getting, you […]

I've recently reunited with my Magic Bullet blender and have been enjoying some incredibly simple and delicious shakes lately.  After whipping up my breakfast this morning (in about 4 seconds), I figured I'd share with you this simple version of the day's best meal. Short background...My wife and I tried a detox diet about a […]

fruits-and-vegetables-photos

I read a disturbing article in the New York Times a couple weeks ago.  The article is titled, “Told to Eat Its Vegetables, America Orders Fries” and focuses on the problem of our reluctance to embrace vegetables as a staple in our diets.  Reading the title made me think back to my lunch a couple […]

What Should You Drink INSTEAD of Gatorade?

runner and gatorade

I owe my readers an apology.  Last week I published a rather lengthy post detailing the reasons Gatorade isn't really good for you.  I presented you with all of the problems of Gatorade.  I felt it was informative and I hope you did too.  But I apologize because I didn't offer a solution.  If you […]

Don't Be Fooled: Gatorade is Garbage

gatorade

So what’s the real truth about Gatorade?  It’s all over the place.  We’re supposed to drink it during our workouts, our runs, and even for hangovers.  The world’s top athletes are endorsing it and even Tiger Woods has his very own line of Gatorade (okay, that doesn't mean much anymore).  It’s an amazing concoction of […]

How to be a Force of Nature: A Review of Laird Hamilton's Book

lairdbook

I recently finished reading Laird Hamilton’s book, Force of Nature:  Mind, Body, Soul (And, of Course, Surfing) and I must say I really recommend it.  Despite the somewhat cheesy title, the book delivers on offering a basic buffet of knowledge about healthy and dynamic living. If you’re not familiar with Laird, he’s a surfing legend […]

Is Eating Healthily Too Time-Consuming?

Bing Images

Something quite ironic struck me while Alyssa and I were preparing dinner last night– eating healthily is sometimes a big pain in the ass!  Don’t get me wrong, I love eating well and have no plans to alter course, but sometimes I think it would be so nice and easy to eat like crap. My […]

Pass (On) The Salt

salt_wideweb__470x308,0

My fiancé gave up table salt for the New Year this year because she knows she uses a lot of it and it’s not the best thing for the body.  But she didn’t know exactly why it’s bad or how bad it is, so she asked me.  This is a typical mindset for many ...
